What do McDonald's founder Ray Kroc, actress Kate Winslet, musician Sir Bob Geldof, basketball player Grant Hill, and famous-for-being-famous heiress Nicky Hilton have in common? They were all born on October 5! In fact, 1-800-Flowers.com tells me that October 5 is actually the most common birthday of the year. Sounds strange? Consider that October 5 falls roughly nine months after New Year's, when all sorts of drunken shenanigans are taking place, it all makes sense....
(On a side note, October 5 also happens to be my youngest sister's birthday. We like to tease her that she was an "Oops" baby; there's a 7-year gap between her and the next sibling, and she's 13 years younger than our oldest sibling. Ewww, now I know what my parents were doing on New Year's Eve that year!!)
Here are some fun ways to celebrate birthdays with 1-800-Flowers.com:
* Surprise your favorite October birthday boy or girl with a birthday floral arrangement from 1-800-Flowers.com. 1-800-Flowers has dozens of ways to Deliver Birthday Smiles -- take this gorgeous pastel birthday cake, for example. It's sweet and delectable, and it doesn't even have any calories.
* Celebrate the most celebrated birthday of the year on October 5 with a Virtual October Birthday Bash on the 1-800-Flowers.com Facebook Page. And if you're in Manhattan on October 5, watch out for the 1-800-Flowers.com birthday float! Check out the 1-800-Flowers Facebook page to RSVP and get more details.
